“Our quinoa is grown by Peter Fairs in the fields of Essex. Peter's selected varieties grow well in lowland Essex, cook just like South American quinoa and provide a deliciously nutty and light quinoa without any bitterness.”
Peter Fairs has been growing quinoa since the 1980s, initially his harvests were destined for bird seed, but Peter selected and replanted the best tasting seed heads eventually arriving at a delicious nutty flavoured quinoa that, unlike many imports, did not have a bitter seed coating that needed to be washed away before cooking. He founded Hodmedod in 2012. Hodmedod is a small but growing independent business, growing pulses and grains sustainably on British farms. Theirs is some of the first British-grown Quinoa which we’re proud to use in our recipes. Packed with protein and flavour to add to any dish!
